What is everybody's thoughts on a 102" hopper versus a 96"? Is it harder to unload "sticky" products like DDG or no? And does the added width ever cause issues clearance wise?

I've got a 96 and a 102. I have no problems with the 102. I prefer the 96 because my pete cab is narrow, so I have more visibility behind the 96. Otherwise nothing to complain about on a 102 in my opinion. I move ddg in both and in the summer it sucks equally 96. Or 102.

It comes down to want you want. My personal opinion is go 102 check out the difference in capacity.

Gates are 6 inches wider on a 102. If you’re hauling sticky products it won’t matter.
